Welcome to the Mandala of Yoga

What follows is a brief sketch of the main types of Yoga as I interpret them. The relationships between them is particularly emphasised as, it seems to me, you will encounter most of these forms (in their essential rather than sectarian form) if you practice any one of them assiduously. Each entails the others. I take it that the variety of Yogas arises from the fact that any aspect of the human being and life can be the vehicle of transformation and the gateless gate into ever-present enlightenment.
